SIG Sauer Academy, a worldwide leader in providing high-quality firearms instruction and tactical training , has entered into a partnership with The Light Foundation for its Corporate Training Day 2021. Proceeds raised from the event will directly benefit the programming of The Light Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing leadership tools and training through outdoor experiences to underserved youth.

“For many years SIG Sauer has been a major sponsor of The Light Foundation’s Celebrity Shoot-Out founded by former New England Patriot offensive tackle Matt Light, that has raised over eight million dollars for the foundations programs,” said Tom Taylor, chief marketing officer and executive vice president, Commercial Sales at SIG Sauer. “For 2021 we are proud to expand our partnership with Matt and his team by bringing the elite instruction of the SIG Sauer Academy to his Corporate Training Day to further benefit, and expand the reach, of The Light Foundation programming.”

The Light Foundation will host Corporate Training Day 2021 on Sept. 21 at Addieville East Farms in Mapleville, RI. This unique experience offers top-level executives with an intense and powerful way to build key leadership skills through an immersive experience. The day will include instruction and training on the proper use and handling of both handguns and rifles and individualized instruction with real-time feedback on participant performance from SIG Sauer Academy staff.

“America’s special operations units set the standard for solving complex problems, overcoming adversity, and achieving results,” said added Matt Light, founder of The Light Foundation. “ We are honored to have the instructors of the SIG Sauer Academy, with their special operations experience, contribute to The Light Foundation’s Corporate Training Day for 2021.”
